LG has already sent out invites for the unveiling of the company’s latest flagship – the LG G5 – at this year’s Mobile World Congress. To further tease the arrival of the G5, LG has also shared a GIF of one of the G5’s most prominent feature – an Always On display.
The Always On display is pretty similar to what LG did with Glance View found on the LG G Flex 2 and the LG G4. In contrast, the LG G5’s Always On display is different in the sense that the screen is literally always on; instead of the screen only being turned on with a gesture.
LG has also shared with Android Authority that the LG G5’s secondary screen is actually a full screen version of the LG V10’s second screen. This means that there will be additional space to display more information, as well as more room to work with in terms of customisation.
However, as far as Always On displays are concerned, the first thought that comes to mind would be the device’s battery life. Seeing that LG opted for the conventional LCD screen instead of the more battery-friendly AMOLED panel, it would be interesting to see how LG will tackle the LG G5’s battery life.
Guess we’ll just have to wait for LG to officially unveil the device so we can get a closer look at how the Always On display will work.
